By the way, you got a good deal on that exhaust work. One good thing about the shitty economy.

Exact same thing I said in the other thread, with some outward sweeps would look nice.

Actually,,,I think I have decided to leave the exhaust as is,,,,Once I get some HI temp paint on it,,I think it will look alright.

That's not a bad idea. It will look a lot different after you paint it.

IN this pic,,you can see I used JB Weld to smooth my frame. Unfortunately It must not have been fully cured and reacted with the primer,,,I ended up stripping it all back off and using body filler instead.

Then it was on to the tins.. Those of you who have been around for a while, know that I have repainted this bike about 12 times,,,each time with rattle can,,and without sanding or stripping it down. Boy did I pay for that today....Started sanding,,not working for shit,,so I hit the tank with a flap wheel and it took about 10 seconds to get through to metal,,,I counted 12 different colors. So I ended up using some chemical stripper and took em all right down to bare metal.

You really need to wet sand those runs. It's worth doing even if you have to re-spray the clear coat. Sand the runs to where it's smooth and just scuff the rest of it with 600 or 800, then re-clear it. Obviously, you're spraying too heavy. It doesn't take that much to cover it. Stop spraying as soon as it looks wet. Let it set up for about 20 minutes or so to the point that it's very tacky and makes a string when you touch it. Then spray it again. After it's dry, you can always wet sand it with 1500 then 2000 and buff it. That will take care of any orange peel and it will be like glass.

You don't need that much clear, btw. This is 2 coats over candy red and base.
